Gimp 2.8.10 won't run on Win 8 64
I've installed and re-installed Gimp, but it refuses to run on Windows 8 64 bit. Keeps giving me the 0xc000007b error message each time I try to start it up.

Any hope / help?

Cheers from sunny Japan,
Charles

0xc000007b errors usually relate to mixing of 32bit and 64bit.
Where are you downloading Gimp from?
Make sure you get the 64 bit version for Windows to align with your hardware/OS requirements.

Oops, sorry, my error. It's actually Win 8.1, and I'm downloading Gimp from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ where it says "The installer contains both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of GIMP, and will install the appropriate one."

Is there something more I need to know?

Hi Fluffy,

The standard download installs Gimp on my Win 8.1 computer, but the program still doesn't start up and run.

Looked all over the Gimp site for a separate 64-bit version to install, and can't find one. Went to CNET.com and searched for a 64-bit version -- none is listed there.

All my other applications installed on the new computer, no problem... just Gimp.

Could sure use some help here - projects sitting and waiting on me.

Cheers from sunny Japan,
Charles

You may decide to try the Win x64bit version from Partha.

Yep, that got it. Now I'm back up and running.
Thanks so much for the link and the advice.
